They've Won!

Our fear of terror is destroying our way of life.

When we reach a point that we can't carry liquids or laptops in our carry-on luggage, we are doomed, I tell you, doomed!

Think about it. Last week it was cigarette lighters, nail clippers and scissors. Now it's deodorant, shampoo and toothpaste. Toothpaste, for heaven's sake! As a friend of mine said yesterday,

"An airport full of ticked off people with bad breath, no makeup, cell phones or laptops and they're worried about TERRORISTS? WTF?"

People will not put their laptops in their checked luggage to have them kicked around by the likes of Cameron Brown.

Husband read somewhere that they will not even be selling shampoo and such in the airports.

Pretty soon, we will all be flying in government-issue paper hospital gowns, barefoot, and carrying nothing.

When I saw the towers go down on TV in 2001, I told my kids that their lives would never be the same. When our president (eventually) made a statement that we would fight, etc, etc, I felt good, for about 30 seconds. Then I started thinking about what such a fight was going to entail.

Still, for all my paranoid thoughts, I never once considered not being able to carry toothpaste onto an airplane!

At least it will make everybody more docile for when it's time to implant the tracking chips under our skin and to give us the bar-code ID tatoos.

I know, but what's a good apocalyptic tale without the "mark of the beast?"
